It’s that time of year when we start to think about our summer holidays. On our things to do list are buying, or finding, shorts, vest tops, sandals and swimsuits. We buy sunscreen and plan our perfect holiday. We then need to turn our attention to personal grooming and hair removal, so that we can wear a bikini or a pair of shorts with confidence. So, what are the best options available to you? Below we explore hair removal methods including shaving, waxing, depilatory cream and intense pulse light therapy.
Shaving is quick and easy while being one of the cheapest options, as all you need are a razor and foaming soap or shaving cream. The problem with shaving the delicate bikini area is with post-shave stubble and irritation to the skin. There is also the added fact that you will need to shave every day. Not a good option if you are on a relaxing break.
Waxing is a popular choice for many women because hair growth takes up to four to six weeks to grow back. The problem is that waxing can be painful, especially when used on the intimate bikini area. Many women who have sensitive skin may also suffer from redness and irritation post waxing. So, it’s not an option for everyone.
Hair removal cream is used by many women on both the legs and bikini area. Hair growth usually takes an average of four to six days to grow back, unlike shaving. Hair removal cream can cause skin irritation and it is messy to apply, which is off-putting for some women.
Intense pulse therapy
Finally, one of the most popular forms of hair removal treatment is intense pulse light therapy. This is a non-invasive treatment that uses a light source to destroy skin follicles, meaning that they never grow back. You will need more than one treatment session, but it does not hurt and all you’ll feel is a warm glow.
